Can't black use the Vancura draw around 19:00.
The endgame is easily the most difficult part of chess to learn IMO. Even a single wrong move that may even look right can lose you the game! What an awesome vid! Thank you GM Lenderman!
Can't see the board on Part 1 nor Part 2 ????
Alex, that was a very useful and insightful video. You are a natural psychologist:) Thanks for sharing!
Great video, learned a lot about rook endgames!
For those with slower brains, couldn't these analyses be carried out with a little less velocity?
Enjoyed the story Alex and the message but how do I get to the other video's in this series?Thanks
How do you get the classical piece style?
Yes you can always stop the video and go back and rewind also, and also you can watch it over and over again.
good video,i love your style.
It would be really nice if there were a way to pause and rewind the video.
video not visible..
Alex! Thanks this was a great story and great example!
I know you. You played in the Baltimore open. you play very well! I love your style.
nice, shankland's K+Q vs K+R now on my list, and Rensch's rook endgames again.
Good video Alex. I'll be at the Marshall Chess Club this Saturday.
thank you so much...very interesting insights...i like how you did a 'psychological profile' as it were, of under estimating an opponent..well done.
It's funny, the advice of this article is exactly the opposite of the advice in the article directly above it, which is all about Carlsen making moves based on the clock and his opponent not the board.
by GM Alex Lenderman
Enjoy this instructive example of why you must always calculate accurately, and not let the emotions of "who you are playing" have any role in your evaluations or approach. GM Lenderman is back as a featured author this month, and he starts off by reviewing an amazing, back and forth struggle between his coach (GM Kacheishvili) and a rising star you might have heard of before... Take notes on Alex's practical advice, as well as the Rook Ending!
